THE SETTLERS HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PRIZE-GIVING: OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL
The Settlers High Senior Prize-Giving, held on 16 October, showcased all four pillars of our well-rounded education and proved our slogan that The Settlers High School offers “Opportunity for All”.
Mr. Wardle, the Chairperson of the school’s Governing Body, opened the prestigious event followed by the executive prefects reporting on the past year, focusing on the four pillars of our school: Sport, Academic, Cultural and Pastoral.
The guest speaker, Professor Tyrone Pretorius, a highly-renowned psychologist and the newly- appointed Rector of The University of The Western Cape for 2015, inspired the learners to learn to use what they have, and not what they do not have, to achieve success.
Over 100 senior learners achieved prizes at this prestigious celebration. Amongst the special awards were the School Dux (Tauriq Latief), the Sportsperson of the Year award (Jodee Johannes), the Malcolm Venter Award for Cultural Leadership (Henry Esau) and The Rotary Cup of Bellville Service Award (Jamie Tities).
